Venue Testimonials

What a beautiful place! A lot of interesting history here, owned by an association of drapers. Even King William of Orange used to be a member for some time. [...] It's currently used as a venue that can be rented out for weddings, events and so on. I even saw Sir Francis Drake featured in a stained glass window! This hall also has the biggest windows I've seen in a while, as well as beautiful paintings and decorative ceilings
